After earning my Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, I pursued Doctor of Medicine in University of the Philippines Manila. I then worked as a physician in various out-patient clinics. After months of clinical practice, I decided to enroll in the Master of Occupational Health program of the same university, and completed it in 2012. I then became an Assistant Professor under the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, College of Public Health, University of the Philippines Manila.
I have been involved in researches on Environmental and Occupational Health. My undergraduate group ventured on determining noise exposure among traffic enforcers. I was also part of the investigating team of a research funded by the Department of Health Philippines entitled Baseline Research Study on the Occupational Diseases Among Workers in Public Healthcare Facilities and DOH Offices. Afterwards, I joined the for the project entitled Strengthening the National Occupational Health and Safety Program of the Philippines.
Furthermore, I have attended trainings, conferences and symposia on Environmental and Occupational Health, Bioethics, Biosafety and Biosecurity, Disaster Risk Reduction and Management, and Leadership and Governance.
I am excited to learn more about Global Health and share my expertise as well with the Department of Global Health of the University of the Ryukyus.
